In the late 1970's, after thousands of years of praying and longing for Jerusalem, the first Ethiopian Jews arrived in Israel.
Was it worth it? in this film the question is posed for the first time to the children of Ethiopian Jews. Their parents tell stories of immense bravery, and of incredible tenderness. Words shifting between the great happiness of village life and their longing for Jerusalem. They chronicle disappointment and resentment.
Their journeys were physically dangerous and their spirits were constantly challenged. A first-time recounting of the improbable journey Ethiopian Jews undertook in order to reach their Jerusalem dream.
